Professional opportunities: As Geography is such a diverse discipline, the array of possible careers is similarly broad. Often careers arise from each of the sub-disciplines augmented by expertise in regions, topics or techniques. Geography is a popular choice for students who seek further training in education, landscape architecture, and city planning. Geographic techniques, especially GIS, are highly marketable skills, and students also develop strong analytical and communications skills. Careers suited to human geographers include market research, real estate, planning, and community development. Geographers also find many suitable careers in government and non-profit agencies.
